The SeaTac Airport C Gate could be renamed the “C is for Craft” Gate. In May 2019 a new shop opened there in partnership with Seattle Made that offers locally-made products for travelers.
Only in C Gate will you find Of The Earth seeded paper cards featuring photos taken by our own Kevin Graham.
Of The Earth is a member of Seattle Made, a group who work together to grow their production businesses. The mission is “to grow and support a diverse ecosystem of urban manufacturers and producers that expand opportunities for local ownership and meaningful employment, build our region’s long-term resiliency, and celebrate Seattle’s unique cultural identity.” Of The Earth’s business aligns perfectly with this effort and we are fortunate to have our products featured in the airport store.
Next time you travel by air via SeaTac’s C Gate, stop by the Seattle Made shop to buy a card, or other locally made gifts, and take us with you!
We’re having fun with our new shape: a onesie that can be printed and personalized on many of our handmade seeded papers. Ideal for a #babyshower, #namingceremony or a #birthannouncement.
When choosing favors for your next party, keep future celebrations in mind. We want to ensure that the next generation of babies have plenty of wildflowers and nature to enjoy during their precious #mudpie making years.
Of The Earth strives to leave only baby-sized carbon footprints.
We have two inch circles and tinier 1.5″ circles. Above is an image of the owner’s hand holding the tiny kind. Keep in mind, he is tall and they are massive!
We can print on the back side of these circles so if you have a special message you want to share with friends and family, we can do that. The printing should not negatively affect the ability of the seeds to germinate. The most important thing is to water it every day during the first month or so.
However you choose to celebrate Earth Day 2019, please keep faith that our planet is worth fighting for. Scientists have agreed that humans can’t operate on auto-pilot like most of our time here. Consequences of our actions are becoming evident, both for good and bad. So let’s plant some seeds, reduce our use of electricity and water and cause good results to blossom next season in the form of wildflowers. Of The Earth believes Earth Day is important and we hope you do too.
We were abuzz in the workroom this week. A bride-to-be in Colorado ordered favors with a customized “Meant to Bee” message on the back. I wonder if the couple met through a shared interest in gardening. Regardless, these little treats are sweet as honey and I hope their wedding guests love them.
We have hexagons with bees and a “Plant Me!” message on the back. Let us know if you’d like to join the hive!
It is long past time to be sharing these photos that have been inspirational to our brides.
We have had the great fortune of having our paper and ribbon goods featured on many talented designers, artists and photographers Instagram feeds. While we have our own feeds (ote_seattle, and of_the_earth) they really don’t hold a candle to the creative skills shown in the photos we have seen.
What we have planned here is to share with you the many photos with proper attribution.
If you do end up sharing these with your friends and family, please be sure to give the appropriate nod or mention of the original group of skilled individuals so their work is not in vain.
